Eco Friendly Home Interiors – It’s Time for You to Change
Did you check out the latest fashion trends on your Instagram handle? Do you know the last video that went viral? You must definitely have seen it! What about the latest home décor trends? No? Shouldn’t we be aware of those as well, especially after all the efforts and investments we put in for our dream home? Or if you are saving up for one, this is the best time to know the trends.
Having said that, you do not need to spend hours into researching the trends, as we at Neelanjan Gupto Design Co have already done the hard work for you. We are an interior design company in Mumbai, who make it our foremost priority to know what’s going on in the market, so as to provide the best services to our customers.
So what is the latest interior design idea that’s making the rounds? Well, the hottest trend these days is Eco Friendly Home Interiors. And since the whole idea is not just about aesthetics, but also about lending a hand to the environment, don’t you think you should be switching to the eco-friendly interior decoration ideas quickly?
There are a lot of myths associated with eco-friendly home décor that make people refrain from making these sensible and sustainable choices. But we, as one of the best interior designers in Mumbai help all our clients make these choices, which make a difference not just in their home décor but also for the environment.
The biggest myth associated with Eco friendly home décor is that it is super expensive (think solar panels or water recycling units!) These certainly are environment friendly ideas but eco-friendly home designs are not restricted to these. There are so many other smaller and eco-friendly decoration ideas that you can incorporate into your home décor at a minimal price.
Here are some pointers for you to get you started on your organic home décor journey and reducing your carbon footprint
- Reuse and recycle – Over a long period of commercialization and the ease of Use and Throw afforded by Plastics, we have forgotten the traditional system of things being used over generations. The next time you look for an eco-friendly decoration material, try to use things that can be reused or at least recycled. And yes, family heirlooms have their own charm! So leave one for your future generations.
- Energy efficiency – Even if you do not want to go the whole way of setting up alternate energy sources, you can increase the efficiency of your energy consumption with organic home décor ideas like colourful water walls, earthenware in decoration, indoor plants to regulate temperatures, using cotton or bamboo curtains to control the temperatures and hence reducing the need for air conditioning.
- Inexpensive options – An extension of the reuse and recycle concept, along with a pocket friendly way to up the chic quotient of your home, is to simply look through the local flea markets. You never know what you can get. No interior design idea can match the uniqueness of finding a quirky furniture that can potentially become the centre piece of your room. Not to mention the price you will get it at the flea market or the roadside stall. All you need is a little time to invest and a creative bent of mind.
- Alternative Decorative Material – Instead of toxic paints, consider using the low VOC options, avoid carpeting the floors if you can, choose the organic candles and decorative materials, try using flower petals for fragrance instead of artificial scents. There is no limit to the options you can generate for eco-friendly home décor, if you get a little creative. You can use the services of experienced residential interior designers who can give you many more such creative ideas.
As the above pointers suggest, adopting the eco-friendly home décor trend is not an expensive and “only for the elite” fashion fad. All it needs is a continuous and conscious effort to ensure that we make a positive impact with all our choices. And a stylish home décor is just one of the many benefits we can get with this commitment. So, are you willing to make the switch?
